January 14th – 18th 2019
Willow Park Camp – Eastern Beach Auckland
The clinic is an annual five-day course run by the NZ International Optimist Dinghy Association Inc. We expect attendees to be competent fleet racers who have previously contested at least two major regattas (2 or 3-day events) such as North or South Island Optimist Champs or National Optimist Championships, Auckland Champs, Winter Champs, Sir Peter Blake Regatta etc.
The main aim of the clinic is to improve the skills of all participants during four days of intensive training and activities. It is also to give sailors a chance to gain some independence. We will have some top New Zealand sailors and coaches performing the coaching duties, under the direction of the appointed Coaching Director.
The venue is the Willow Park Christian Camp, just 50 meters from Eastern Beach near Auckland. Shore based activities, meal times and night supervision is under the direction of an appointed “On-Shore Manager”.
